Turkish investigators enter Saudi consul’s Istanbul residence

October 17, 2018

ISTANBUL (Reuters) – A team of Turkish investigators entered the Saudi consul’s Istanbul residence on Wednesday, a Reuters cameraman at the scene said, as part of the investigation into the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said earlier that Turkish officials hoped to enter the consulate on Wednesday. Turkish police entered the Saudi consulate on Monday for the first time since Khashoggi’s disappearance two weeks ago, searching the premises for nine hours.
